Deckhand Boat Charter Waiting List

Deckhand Boat Charter Waiting List

If you are lDeckhand Boat Excursions Victoria BCocal to Victoria and would like to tag along on one of our private boat charters this is an opportunity for you to come out on the ocean with us as a volunteer deckhand.

It’s not anything close to "work" and especially not like working on a fishing boat or large commercial boats. Our expectations of you include:

  • helping passengers embark and disembark from the boat
  • helping passengers put on / take off life jackets and/or survival suits where needed
  • tying / untying the boat from the docks
  • Removing protective seat and helm covers and putting them back on after the excursion
  • Enjoy yourself and have fun


How to be Considered

Send a short email to us explaining why you wish to volunteer, what - if any - boating experience you have (this does not impact our consideration of your application, however, it gives us a baseline reference) and a bit about yourself. You must be physically and mentally agile and reliable.

If we accept you we will add you to our wait-list and contact you once its your turn. If you are not availalble for any particular upcoming date, the next person on the list will be offered the spot and you will go to the bottom of the list again. If you are a no-show, ask to bring a friend, or a pet you will be permanently removed from further consideration.

Bald eagles, turkey vultures, porpoise, seals, sea lions, orca killer whales

A superb stay in an outstanding location - topped by a fantastic day with Dieter looking for - and finding the local wildflife, bald eagles, turkey vultures, porpoise, seals, sea lions and the highlight 2 orca killer whales. All in the most stunning scenery. Its been wonderful to stay here for four nights on our road trip around the west coasts of Canada and America - celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. We’ve also enjoyed the chance to sit and watch the birds - the birding scope is a great idea. Thanks for a wonderful stay in a fabulous place - we hope to return.
